Hyundai is exploring wearable technology with its all-new 2015 Genesis. The South Korean carmaker’s Blue Link platform features remote start and service information quickly accessible via wearable devices like Google Glass and others. These wearable devices could help car owners save time as well as access a new level of convenience by allowing remote interaction with the vehicle without having to pull out and access their smartphone.

Hyundai is planning to unveil a Blue Link Glassware application in 2015 with the all-new 2015 Genesis sedan. “We see wearables as a technology trend, expanding from fitness and health monitoring to broader applications,” according to Barry Ratzlaff, executive director, Customer Connect and Service Business Development, Hyundai Motor America.

He said that as a leader in connected car technology, Hyundai is always exploring new ways to use technology to enhance the ownership experience for its customers. He noted that wearables are a “great way to extend the experience outside of the vehicle” by leveraging them to quickly access remote features and deliver timely vehicle information.”

The all-new 2015 Hyundai Genesis comes with a range of technology and connectivity features, making it suitable to demonstrate mobility and connectivity features, many of which cannot be found in rival vehicles.

Hyundai is planning to launch the 2015 Genesis with new infotainment and connectivity features powered by Blue Link. “Genesis is a unique take on luxury where the owner experience is enabled through the intelligent application of technology, features and services that empower the owner,” said Mark Dipko, director of Corporate Planning and Strategy at Hyundai Motor America.
